Father’s Day is just around the corner and if you still haven’t found the perfect gift, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
Here are our favorite bourbon gifts for dad – some you can even enjoy together!
Top 15 Bourbon-Inspired Gift Ideas For Dad
1. A Bourbon Review Magazine Subscription
One of the best gifts you can give to dad is the gift of bourbon knowledge — sign him up for a one-year subscription to The Bourbon Review Magazine. He’ll get all the deets about new bottle releases, limited edition bottles, and whiskey events — basically, everything he needs to know about American whiskey.
2. Bourbon Club Membership
If you want to take it a step further, get your dad a Bourbon Club Membership. We highly recommend getting him a Flaviar Membership. He’ll get access to curated tasting boxes and full-sized bourbon bottles, join free live tasting events, and become part of a community with other bourbon lovers.
A Flaviar Membership is probably the best gift you can give to any bourbon fan, not just on Father’s Day.
3. 5-Piece Bar Set
Some dads are more experimental. If your dad is one of them, get him a 5-Piece Bar Set. It’s the perfect gift for any home mixologist, and they won’t need to look elsewhere for tools. This set includes a bar spoon, jigger, strainer, and bottle opener, in a stainless steel elegant gold finish. It also includes a stand for simple storage.
4. Crystal Lowball Glasses
Crystal Lowball Glasses are perfect for dads who love sipping good bourbon after a long workday. These glasses also come in a set of four, so you can enjoy a few bourbons together whenever you come over.
Get lowball glasses made with thick glass, so they feel nice and sturdy in the hand. Make sure that they do not teeter and wobble when set atop the table, and get one in a nice design so Dad can use it on many different occasions. You can bet that he’ll always think of you whenever he uses the Crystal Lowball Glasses.
5. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Smoking Chips
We don’t know any dad who doesn’t like cooking barbecue on the grill. Why not combine his love for fine bourbon with medium roast or barbecued steak? You won’t find a more perfect pairing. These Smoking Chips are taken from select staves from the best Kentucky bourbon barrels and chipped to the perfect size for smoking.
These Smoking Chips will infuse mouthwatering bourbon flavors into any sizzling slab of meat. Don’t believe us? Open up the bag of chips and experience it for yourself. 
6. Bourbon Tasting Box
There are plenty of tasting boxes for sale out there, but make sure to get one specifically for bourbon for your favorite bourbon fan. The Bourbon Tasting Box comes in a set of three, inclusive of instructions on drinking the bourbon and how best to taste it. It’s the ultimate gift for a true bourbon lover.
He’ll become exposed to new flavor profiles and become a bourbon expert in no time. You can also get in on the activity and experiment with the Tasting Box together. But where can you buy whiskey online?
7. A Set of Bitters For Cocktails
This Set of Bitters for Cocktails is the perfect gift for Dads who love mixing and matching unique flavors in their bourbon cocktails. We specifically love the set from Woodford Reserve, which includes aromatic, spiced cherry, chocolate, and orange bitters — all the basics to make tasty cocktails.
Bitters are key to making any Old Fashioned or classic Manhattan come to life. Who knows? He might whip up a bourbon cocktail with your bourbon gift just for you the next time you come for a visit.
8. Hydro Flask for Outdoor Bourbon
We don’t know about you, but we enjoy bourbon while doing outdoor activities. But glassware shattering in the great outdoors sounds nightmarish.
Enter the Hydro Flask for Outdoor Bourbon. This is the perfect bourbon gift for a bourbon lover who wants to bring their favorite drink to fishing, hunting, or camping activities. This flask is specifically designed for whiskey, made with a stainless steel interior to preserve authentic bourbon flavor.
It also comes in a honeycomb design, so the temperature of the beverage stays consistent. Dad can also use it for coffee, fruit juice, or hot chocolate.
9. ‘Nose Your Bourbon’ Kit
You know how some bourbon drinkers claim they can smell “leather, cherries, and oak” in a dram? Identifying the aromas in bourbons comes with a lot of training.
The Nose Your Bourbon Kit does just that — and it’s the perfect gift for bourbon lovers who want to “smell” the spirit better. We specifically love this one from “Nose Your Bourbon,” which includes 18 different elements in screw-top containers and instructions on using the kit, all in a portable carrying case.
10. Flaviar Merch
It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Flaviar. We invite your bourbon-loving dad to join the club.
Get him any Flaviar merch, which includes unique glassware, socks, T-shirts, and sweaters, all made from durable and quality material that will last the test of time. If you’re feeling extremely generous, you can give him a full-blown home bar for his bourbons that you can customize with his name.
11. Ice Molds
Ice is quintessential for every glass of bourbon from the liquor store. Get your favorite bourbon drinker a nice Ice Mold so that he can enjoy his favorite dram on the rocks. We especially love this silicone mold that creates colossal ice cubes, so he can enjoy a chilled drink without worrying about the ice melting too quickly and diluting the liquor.
12. Cigar Club Membership
Bourbon and cigars — what could be a more perfect pairing? Get your dad a Cigar Club Membership this Father’s Day, wherein he’ll get either three or five different cigars per month — whether that’s Arturo Fuente, Davidoff, or Padron — depending on the membership you choose.
13. Bartender Set
Your dad’s home bar wouldn’t be complete without a Bartender Set. We especially love this 14-piece Bartender Set from A Bar Above, as each tool is solidly made with professional-grade steel, so it doesn’t break or tarnish easily.
This set has everything you need to make cocktail drinks at home, and your dad can make drinks for just about everyone — even you.
14. Bourbon Distillery Tour
They say experience is one of the best gifts — so why not take your dad out on a Bourbon Distillery Tour? This will surely be one for the books.
There are so many great distilleries in Kentucky (aside from the Kentucky Bourbon Trail) that provide some of the best experiences. If you don’t want to go with a group, there are custom tour services that allow you to experience the tour at your own pace. Set aside a full day of bourbon bonding with your dad to show him how much you appreciate all that he does.
15. Bourbon Barrel
Lastly, we don’t think anything would scream “I love bourbon” even more than owning a barrel. Buy a used barrel from major distilleries and give one to your dad as a Father’s Day present. It can be used as a rustic table for the basement when he has a few friends over to enjoy drinks.
Ultimate Buyer’s Guide
We’re going to be starting with price. Since you’re going to be the one spending on a Father’s Day gift, you want to make sure you’re comfortable with the price. We don’t want you to buy something that’s on this list even though you couldn’t afford it.
You want to give your dad a Father’s Day gift that he can and will actually use. If your dad isn’t the type to make drinks from scratch, it wouldn’t make much sense if you would give him a Bartender Set.
You want to give your dad something he can easily use and understand. If he loves to sample different drams but doesn’t have the time to go to tasting events, get him the Bourbon Membership so he can sample different drams in the comfort of his own home.
Will Your Dad Love It?
Here’s a no-brainer: of course, your dad will love it if it came from you. If you give him a gift from the heart, that’s all that matters.
Is Blanton’s Bourbon a good gift for Dad?
Yes, Blanton’s Bourbon is a good gift for Dad this Father’s Day. Of course, bonus points if your dad considers this top-shelf one of his favorite bottles. This rare bottle is a great gift for Father’s Day, and he will proudly show it off with his other fine liquors if you give it to him.
What bourbon accessories can you get as gifts for dad?
You can get bourbon accessories like a sturdy, timeless decanter, a barrel flight with glasses set, or colossal ice sphere molds as Father’s Day gifts for dad. He’ll be able to use all these accessories for his favorite hobby. But do you put bourbon in a decanter?
